Take a Risk

Take a Risk

By popular demand the Discovery Library staff ran ‘Take a Risk’ again in May this year. For those of you who don’t know what this is, here is a short explanation:

We wrap up books in brown paper and string and the students take a risk because they don’t know what they are borrowing. In return for taking a risk, if the students fill out a short questionnaire on the book, they automatically win a prize AND their name goes into a free prize draw with the chance of winning more prizes. There are also spot prize cards in some books.

This year around 100 students participated with 85 questionnaire being completed and prizes claimed. We also gave out 25 spot prizes. Congratulations to Chloe O’Brien in 8 BM who won the free prize draw, Albert Bugden in 8 BM who won second prize and Lena Koca in 7ML who won third prize.

Since ‘Take a Risk’ was so popular we hope to run it again at Christmas so watch out for it.
